If you depend too much on someone, eventually they will fail you, let you down or be unable to help you at your most desperate hour. I think everyone has felt the sting of being let down by someone they instilled their trust in — some more than others of course. But isn’t that inevitable? The mere fact we are human means we are all flawed and imperfect. Over reliance is the perfection desired in the world of the imperfect.
I didn’t let you down. I was only human. Who knew independence was so rare?
